Physical digital setting up

Today we welcomed the team from Physical Digital to the workshop. We met them last November at the Advanced Engineering Show at the NEC, and discussed the possibility of them coming and scanning in our power unit. They were extremely enthusiastic, but their workload over the Christmas period meant a delay until today before they could spare the time and equipment.
Dan, Ben and Quintus quickly set up the gear and got the powerful computer warming up. Daniel and Ben took time to explain to Roger and myself the procedures involved.. It was fascinating to watch them work, with new words like Photogrammetry to understand! That is the versatile optical coordinate measuring machine (CMM).. yes it gave me a headache too!
To complete the scan of the whole power unit used 10.85 million points, and I was absolutely enthralled by the emerging picture on the main computer as the machine progressed through each individual scan. The process is line of sight, so something as complicated as our power unit would be a vast task. We aimed at getting the overall outline to aid our chassis build, and the result was superb.

Nick and Jono from SW Film were there to make a promotional video of the process which I think will benefit everybody! www.southwestfilm.co.uk

Engineering meeting, March 8th

Collwright Engineering Services logo

Today we had a preliminary meeting with Oliver and Luke from Collwright Engineering Services. They are doing some design development and FEA analysis on components. We discussed the alterations to the plenum design to make it possible with a 3 axis mill. The drive system was discussed, and a gearbox linkage agreed for the gearchange. Several other systems were analysed for possible improvements.
Overall it was a very satisfying meeting, with plenty of positive outcomes and further aspects to develop. Thanks to Oliver from Collwright for hosting the meeting, and his superb work on the Angelic Bulldog Project.
